RACE REACTION: VOTER RESPONSES TO TEA PARTY MESSAGES IN ECONOMICALLY STRESSED COMMUNITIES

A new CSI report, Race Reaction: Voter Responses to Tea Party Messages in Economically-Stressed Communities, highlights CSI’s analysis of election results, foreclosure data, and campaign messages from 60 congressional districts. CSI finds that the Tea Party capitalized on economic insecurity and used race as a wedge to win in economically-stressed, majority-White districts.
